A white sandy beach awaits you...

About Us



Dawn Madak - hand drums, percussion, vocals

Bridgette Michaels - acoustic guitar, lead vocals, songwriter

Gary Peresta - bass, occasional vocals :)


Our History

This trio formed one sunny day by chance at a festival on Maryland Avenue in Annapolis 6 years ago. Gary was performing before Bridgette and Dawn that day and he asked to sit in because, well, "You ladies obviously need a bass guitar!" Lots of gigs and laughs later, he was absolutely right!


Our Sound

The type of music that Guava Jelly delivers is unlike most other performers.  Their fun, reggae-styled children’s songs introduce audiences to new music by combining Bridgette's Caribbean infused originals and popular old-time favorites with a stylistic twist. Their mission is to transport every young and young-at-heart person witnessing the show to a warm, white, sandy beach through their interactive and upbeat style.  Come to de islands wit us, mon!
